Firefighters Handle Chimney Fire

Posted on June 12, 2016

Last week, Washington Township Fire Companies were dispatched to a Chimney Fire on Mission Road. First arriving officers found nothing to be showing from the exterior of the structure except for light smoke showing from the chimney. Incoming engines from Schooleys and Long Valley were advised to go to the roof, empty the fire box and check for the possibility of extension. Interior crews found high heat behind the fire box and located an active fire at the base of the flue. Crews knocked the fire with a water can and performed overhaul. All units left within an hour.

Every Kids' Dream

Posted on June 12, 2016

“At an early age, children notice for the first time that big, red, loud, fire engine as it roars down a street. Like every kid, it is love at first sight!" Unless one is a firefighter, not many people get the chance to ride in a fire truck and experience lights and sirens first-hand. But last month, the Long Valley Fire Company raffled a fire truck ride to one lucky student from each elementary school in Washington Township at the Trick Tray Fundraiser. The lucky winners from Flocktown/ Kossman Road School, Cucinella School, and Old Farmers Road School got to ride in the fire truck to and from school this past week. The kids got to ride with several firefighters (and their parents) and experience lights and sirens when pulling into the schools. Everyone had a blast!

Deadly Naughright Road Crash

Posted on May 25, 2016

This past monday, Long Valley Fire, Long Valley EMS, and the Rescue Team were dispatched to 18 Naughright Road for the motor vehicle accident. The first arriving EMS units quickly requested for a Medevac. Long Valley Chief 1 and Engine 1-1 arrived on scene of the accident and quickly redirected towards the landing zone. After the helicopter was safely on the ground, ALS canceled the medevac and the patient was transported to Hackettstown hospital via the first aid squad where he later succumbed to his injuries. Morris County sheriff and prosecutors office also were at the scene. The fire company sends our prayers to the family.

Naughright Road Brush Fire

Posted on April 20, 2016

Last night, Long Valley Fire was dispatched to Naughright Road for a brush fire behind a residence. Chief 1 was first to arrive and advised of an active fire in the woods and requested for the NJ State Forest Fire Service (NJFFS) to respond. Because of the rapid growth of the fire, Chief 1 also requested for Schooleys Mtn and Fairmount to respond. Engine 1-1 arrived on scene shortly after and stretched over 500 feet of hose to reach the fire. NJFFS was able to gain access to the fire and both crews worked to contain the fire to about half an acre. Tender 2-7 arrived second due and supplied Engine 1-1 with water. All companies worked on scene for about 90 minutes until clearing the scene. Long Valley EMS also assisted at the scene with rehab.
